About the Poetry

All of the poems in this blog are spirit-inspired. Every word came to me each day for a full year while in deep meditation. I simply wrote what I heard onto a pad of paper in my lap with eyes closed – meaningful, multi-stanza verses in mere minutes. I was unaware of each poem’s theme until I transcribed it later word for word. Each day brought new and wondrous discoveries about the world beyond our five physical senses, incredible wisdom, and messages of hope which I share with you in this blog. The last poems received are displayed below on this page, but the entire collection of 365+ poems are archived here in the left-hand column. You can search by topic or keyword using the search box in the upper left corner. May you find among them just the right message which speaks to your heart.

Poem #192 - True Strength

Here come the elephants
With their trunks so long,
Raising them into the air
To spout a hearty song.

Trumpeting, you call it.
A bellow, oh so loud.
Magnificent is such a beast,
So mighty, and so proud.

Size and strength mean much to you.
You think they equal power.
But the tiniest of microbes,
Your strength it can devour.

True might comes not from things you see,
Nor that which you can feel.
The greatest power lies in that
Which no hand has yet to feel.

The spirit’s where true strength resides,
All courage and all love.
And this is found in all of life
From man to hawk and dove.

Honor that which gives you breath.
The part you cannot see.
It’s present, everlasting…
Into eternity.

  1. "The spirit's where true strength resides..." so honor all of life, especially oneself. A reminder from the world of spirit this morning to look within for true strength where Spirit lives for now and into eternity.

    The image of the elephant next to the microbe is effective in showing that true strength is not in size. I especially like the line, "From man to hawk and dove..." Lots to think about in that line with several possible interpretations for me.

    On to honoring all of life this day...
